To the Editor:
A number of people hope they never have to call, 911. This has been the universal number to call for Emergency assistance since the 1970’s. However, with recent advances in technology, many people do not have home phones any longer, using just cell phones. Most of those people a majority of time just text message. However, if they attempt to text message 911 in many communities, like Trumbull, the delivery of their text message will fail. AT&T and Verizon Wireless later this year will complete implementing text to 911 capabilities on their networks making the weak point the fact that most 911 answering centers are not texting capable.
